Cuphea

Vermillionaire

Vermillionaire is a tough and durable plant that will provide abundant flowers throughout the summer season. The bright orange colored tubular flowers will attract hummingbirds in waves. With that in mind, it makes a great conversation piece for containers where foot traffic or social gatherings are common.

This cuphea thrives in our southern heat and humidity and will be drought tolerant once well established. Give it a good full sun location and enjoy the unique texture this plant adds to any combination along with the hummingbird show.
